Project Overview

After three years of residence, our client decided it was time to renovate his ensuite at St Heliers.

Prior to the renovation by Ideal Renovations, Simon’s ensuite displayed signs of wear and aging after three years of use. The existing vanity and shower, though functional, were showing wear and tear. Simon envisioned a complete overhaul, seeking not only functional upgrades but also a modern and luxurious design.

Jimmy, Lee & the crew at Ideal Renovations were fantastic from day one to the end of the project. The timeliness through to the finished bathroom was top-notch, and terrific communication throughout. I appreciate their professionalism and the responsiveness along with the value for money.

Before The Renovation​

20230125 130628

Simon had a clear vision for a luxurious ensuite with black fittings and tiles, while maintaining the existing layout but replacing the drop-in bath with a walk-in shower. Given the bungalow-style house with Rimu interior walls, Simon opted for a barn door to preserve the home’s unique character.

The dated drop-in bath and existing layout were identified as areas requiring attention. Simon aimed to replace the bath with a walk-in shower for both aesthetic and practical reasons. His choice of black color fittings and tiles reflected a desire for a sophisticated and contemporary look.

Being in a bungalow-style house with Rimu interior walls, the project retained the house’s unique character. Simon opted for a barn door instead of a sliding door, blending modern upgrades with the existing style.

After The Renovation

Overall look & feel

The renovated ensuite is a harmonious blend of modern luxury and timeless elegance. As you enter, a seamless fusion of sophistication and contemporary style unfolds. The atmosphere is warm, with rich, contrasting tones that visually captivate. Meticulously curated details evoke opulence, from the glossy French-themed tiles to the muted Rimu interior walls.

The layout enhances spaciousness, creating an open and inviting environment. The frameless walk-in shower with coated tempered glass adds to the sense of airiness, while the barn door integrates modern upgrades with the bungalow-style home. Bold black fittings and tiles provide a striking contrast, achieving a carefully balanced mix of contemporary design and timeless charm.

The renovated ensuite is a sanctuary of indulgence, meeting modern standards while reflecting the unique personality of the homeowner.

The ensuite features a custom-made 1*1.8m frameless walk-in shower with tempered glass and Enduro Shield coating to minimize water stains. The floor and wall tiles are French-themed glazed Porcelain tiles in 600mmx600mm from Tile Depot, creating a seamless and grand appearance. 

Waterproofing is ensured with full Aqualine GIB and Technokolla waterproof products. To maintain the style and substance, a proper extractor fan is installed in the ceiling.

Bathroom Cabinets and Storage:

Ensuite storage is elegantly incorporated with a 750mm wall freestanding Malik Rubik vanity from Reece Plumbing. Additional storage comes from a 750mm white mirror cabinet, offering space for shavers, toothbrushes, etc. LED mirror lights from Lighting Plus enhance both functionality and aesthetics.
